What you need:
1 roll of kitchen towel (recycled paper if they exist)What to do:
2 plastic containers with lids (big enough to fit half a roll of kitchen wipes, mine are 1.25 litres)
3 cups water
2 Tbs baby and earth friendly soap ( I use envirocare body and hair cleanser, which is cheap, locally made, available online and can be used as shampoo and soap for the whole family)
4 Tbsp oil (I use sesame, but for nappy rash I'd switch to coconut)
4 drops of lavender oil (for it's antibacterial qualities)
You can pull a few wipes off the roll and store them in a small snap lock bag to take them in your nappy bag with you.
- Cut the paper towel in half with a knifes (not a serated knife as this will leave jaggedy edges) and remove the cardboard roll inside.
- Boil and cool the water and then mix with soap and oils.
- Put half the kitchen towel in each container and cover with half the liquid each.
- Close the lids tightly and leave on container of wipes at your change station and the other in the fridge for later.
My main concern at the moment is that I can't find recycled paper kitchen towels, but I'll keep looking. One alternative if your really keen to be green is the keep the solution in a spray bottle and spray it onto reusable cloth wipes.
